Back to the USSR






It is easy and fast to get back to the USSR right in the center of Novosibirsk. Here, only 2 minutes from Lenin Square, ou can visit a place known as ‘Cafeteria No.1’ (Буфет №1).


Right after you open the entrance door you feel you are no longer in the 21st century, but about 30-40 years ago.IMG_0986



Old-fashioned furniture, food and drinks typical for the Soviet past, even the bar-woman behaving and talking to customers in somewhat coarse and unfriendly manner like her mother or grandmother could have behaved. Among the advantages are not only the interior, but attractive prices and food of quite good quality. Besides, though the place is quite close to main city attractions, it is never full of visitors. I guess the locals are somewhat afraid of the place, especially those who still remember the Soviet style of restaurants and cafes, but the place is so very different from all surrounding places that it is a good idea to go there  in any case simply for a change. And even if you are not hungry or don’t feel like eating something like products offered here, you can visit the place as a museum of Russian or better Soviet everyday life.IMG_0988 IMG_0987 IMG_0985 IMG_0984 IMG_0983
